Agreed! The value of picks falls off heavily usually around 40th overall depending on the draft. We should not trade these pick as a rebuilding team. I think the later picks are over valued on these boards but high seconds are very valuable. We traded one to Florida for Gudbranson have the Canucks traded another high 2nd. I know we traded mid 2nd for Vey and Sven and included a second for Sutter I believe not sure where that pick was. Was it Anaheim's for Bieksa. Anyway one of the biggest advantages for bad teams is not just the lottery but the high second round pick and should not be traded lightly. There is now a zero tolerance policy in effect for off topic posts in this thread. That means if you go off on someone and make accusations about what their name used to be, instant 5 point warning. Do it again and you're banned from this thread. If you go off needlessly bashing other members, instant 5 point warning. Do it again and you're banned from this thread. That would really suck because we no longer have 1,000 post limits here. That means you're out until a new thread begins at the start of the 18/19 season. We need to get this under control. Fair warning.
